Van Wey & Williams is proud to announce that our very own Kay Van Wey has been, once again, recognized by Super Lawyers. This marks the 19th consecutive year that Kay has earned this honorable distinction.
Kay Van Wey was fighting hard battles in the courtroom long before there even was a Super Lawyers designation. She has received this recognition since 2003 when the Super Lawyers list began, and it is an honor that she does not take lightly. “I consider it one of the highest accomplishments of my career that I have earned the votes of my peers each and every year since,” she says.
Van Wey is working harder than ever because of the abundant opportunities she has to help people whose lives have been destroyed by a catastrophic injury or wrongful death. “I do not think you can be successful as a personal injury trial lawyer unless you love people,” she says.
When she isn’t advocating in and out of the courtroom, she teaches. Kay is an Adjunct Professor of Law at SMU Dedman School of Law where she regularly teaches the course on Law and Medicine. “It is my responsibility to help bring up the next generation of trial lawyers,” she says.
Many of the cases Van Wey has worked on over the decades have achieved national media attention. Recently, her work has been featured in “Dr. Death,” a made-for-TV movie and documentary on NBC’s Peacock streaming service.
Super Lawyers is a rating service for lawyers that features attorneys from more than 70 practice areas. All of the lawyers recognized have an abundance of esteemed peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers’ patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations.
